World History of Architecture






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  McGraw-Hill Professional Publishing
Summary: From review by Martha Lawler

This impressive survey of world architecture includes a wealth of information, and is beautifully formatted and enhanced with 570 photographs (300 in color) and 350 line drawings. A series of maps precedes the informative and well-written text. The introduction gives an overview of the design and construction of both individual buildings and entire communities, and the chapte...rs are arranged chronologically from prehistoric times to late twentieth century. There is heavy emphasis on Western traditions, but also considerable discussion of Asian, Islamic, Russian, and pre-Columbian American structures. Architectural terms are highlighted in bold type the first time they appear and are presented together in a glossary along with an excellent annotated bibliography. Perhaps the most rewarding features, besides the stunning color illustrations, are the line drawings depicting floor plans and elevations. Each chapter presents a brief overview of historical events and social customs that influenced architectural styles, as well as individuals who played significant roles in the support, design, and construction of various projects. Interspersed throughout are separate essays highlighting particular aspects of architectural history. Not only is this collection an excellent source of information, it is also an entertaining journey through the history of world architecture.
